The office of Brazil's President-elect Dilma Rousseff announced on Friday the names of three more ministers of her cabinet.

In a statement released earlier in the day, President-elect Roussef confirmed Former Finance Minister and current House representative Antonio Palocci as her new Chief of Staff.

Gilberto Carvalho was chosen as the General Secretary of the President and House representative Jose Eduardo Cardozo will be the next Justice Minister.

In the statement, the President-elect asked her new ministers to work "in an integrated manner" in order to fulfill the government's program to ensure Brazil's development with wealth distribution and economic stability.

With the nominations, the number of ministers announced by President-elect Rousseff reaches six.

Last month, she decided to maintain Finance Minister Guido Mantega in his position and chose Miriam Belchior for the Planning, Budget and Management Ministry.

Rousseff also nominated Alexandre Tombini to the Central Bank presidency. Before being confirmed in the position, however, Tombini will have to be approved by the Brazilian Senate.

President-elect Rousseff still needs to choose over 20 ministers and special Secretaries. She is expected to announce the names of all cabinet members by December 15.
